Lights Go On In Scotland

by | Jan 6, 2006

c|net: A Scottish university is testing solar-powered streetlights that also deliver wireless Internet access.

The Project Starsight technology is being tested as part of a deal between Compliance Technology, a company based in Fife, Scotland, and the Abertay Center for the Environment (ACE) at the University of Abertay in Dundee.

The solar panels provide a free energy source for the streetlight and also for the Wi-Fi or WiMax connection.
